Low Budget PURGE tops a Summer Weekend?
Who says low budget movies can’t compete in the Summer? Shot for around $million, THE PURGE took the top spot in this weekend’s domestic box office. It slipped by last wekend’s top movies FAST AND FURIOUS 6 and NOW YOU SEE ME, as well as this weekend’s more costly newcomer THE INTERNSHIP. In fifth place the family animation EPIC is failing to be epic at the box office.   It looks as if EPIC will limp across the $100 million line but fade far before it reaches $200 million. THE CROODS at $184 million looks as it it may fade out before it reached $200 million, but will probably fare better than EPIC. Could this be the Summer of animation disasters? Disney and Universal hope to perk up animation box office with MONSTERS UNIVERSITY and DESPICABLE ME 2.

     No V – No violence

The major studios appear to be on a violence binge. In an era when many are calling for gun control, Hollywood appears to be out of control in its love for guns and explosions.
